sounds like your temperature sensor is either unplugged, faulty, or missing. It's under your front bumper, and it's a very easy and fairly inexpensive fix.

-37 deg is the temperature that will be displayed when, as M3UND said, the temperature sensor is unpluggled, faulty, or missing. Easy fix.

WarNox is an unknown quantity at this point
its located in your front bumper air-vent. passenger side (on my car which is a RHD). turn your wheels in one direction, then you can squeeze your head in there and get to it from behind.
